Best College Food

Grab your Number 2 pencils, kids, because it’s time for a pop quiz: All dining hall food is disgusting. Select A for true and B for false.

Did you just bubble in A on your Scantron sheet? If so, you couldn’t be more wrong...just be thankful this misstep won’t count toward your final grade.

You may think there’s no way you’ll get a decent meal in college unless you live at home but there are plenty of on-campus dining options across the country that have students lining up to fill their plates (and stomachs). With choices ranging from pasta and pecan pie to sushi and sirloin, there’s a meal out there for every student and colleges are doing their part to ensure what they’re serving has enough vitamins and nutrients to sustain a balanced diet.

The Princeton Review lists the following institutions as bearers of the best collegiate food. There's a serious smorgasbord of deliciousness below. But don’t worry, we won’t tell Mom her pork chops have been bested.

  1. Bowdoin College
  2. Virginia Tech
  3. UMass Amherst
  4. James Madison University
  5. Washington University in St. Louis
  6. Wheaton College (Illinois)
  7. College of the Atlantic
